Chevron, Butterflies, & Doilies, oh my!

There is a whole lotta stuff going on in this card today – patterned paper, stitching, doilies, felt, butterflies, chevron stripes…

The sketch is based on the Card Patterns challenge for this week and the colors are another entry for Totally Hues #7. I definitely associate chevron stripes with a more modern look, but I think they look nice as a subtle background in this somewhat vintage-y card — so this is also for the Chevron Chic Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

Wedding Wishes

So, I’m headed to Texas bright & early tomorrow morning for my bestfriend’s wedding and have definitely waited to the last possible moment to make my card! On the plus side, I can now participate in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop because flowers are an obvious choice for weddings!

My colors are inspired by the current Totally Hues challenge - perfect soft colors for a wedding. I heat embossed the rose on Berry Sorbet cardstock, mounted onto Sweet Blush cardstock. I used Spring Moss for the leaves and stamped the image in Fresh Snow. Some light yellow pearls & Berry Sorbet ribbon finished it off. I adhered the rose with foam adhesive.

Happy Wishes

Happy Sunday everyone. It is a gorgeous sunny day in London!


Made this cheerful balloon card for my friend’s birthday – hope it brings her some cheerfulness. Balloons are very cheerful to me.


The green hills are inpsired by a card I saw over at the talented Laurie’s blog – ο»ΏI love how she used the Papertrey Ink embossing folder for her rolling hills. She is super creative and clever!

This card is for the In My Beautiful Balloon Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. The card colors are inspired by the current Totally Hues challenge at Heather’s blog & this is definitely a springy card, so its also going into the current Springing into Spring challenge at Passion for Papetrey. I used heat embossing for the Papertrey Ink Make it Mondays challenge.

TGIF

Happy Friday everyone!

 I had a request from someone recently for an engagement card and realized I’ve never come across a ‘Congratulations on your engagement’ sentiment in any stamp set — has anyone else? It is very common in the  UK to send engagement cards — and I’ve lived here long enough that I can’t remember if this is done in the states — is it?!?! Anyway, its on my *wish list* of sentiments…

So, onto the task at hand – this card is for Make It Mondays – Glitter Strips with Scor-tape and also the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop as I was able to use this lovely scalloped circle from Limitless Layers. I was definitely inspired by Dawn’s card in the video and already had my sites set on using this mat stack frame for the card as it is perfect for a wedding theme! The card says ‘Congratulations’ and it is a little hard to see in the picture, but fine in person!

The colors are inspired by the current Totally Hues Challenge over at the lovely Heather’s blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
